    In these difficult times it is not always easy to do things together like a lunch with colleagues or having a chat with your classmates. To help people get in touch with each other, the UT languagecenter offers a digital Dutch language café where you can meet new people, have a conversation about daily things and at the same time practice your Dutch. We want to welcome everyone who wants to practice their Dutch or who wants to help others with their Dutch.

Likewise, if you already speak Dutch and would like to help others practise and socialise at the same time, you’re welcome to join us!


    The Virtual Dutch Language Café (VDLC) is available several times a week year-round. For the Winter 2021 Edition, the VDLC will take place every day from December 24 through January 9 from 4pm to 5pm. During the Winter 2021 Edition, you can look forward chatting with other Dutch speakers, but we will also offer all kinds of activities to do while talking: compete in an online Dutch shuffleboard tournament, a game of pictionary or a pub quiz, bake Dutch winter cookies, fold origami or join a karaoke session, musically gifted or not!
